We Among Others
Fernanda Carolina Armando Duarte
Rodrigo Rezende de Souza
NÓS entre OUTROS is an unfolding of the 2017 video performance by Edilson Ferri and Agda Carvalho, which brought the discussion of zones of extreme realities. In 2021, the proposal emerges together with Fernanda Duarte and Rodrigo Rezende, to discuss the meaning of the human dimension in the face of conflicts, losses, as a result of the pandemic, another zone of tension. Political and cultural issues proliferate in events and actions, in response to the juxtaposition of facts. And, as a consequence, the emptiness and crumbling of an experience. The artwork care for memory, discuss encounters and mismatches, believe in the endurance of the meaning of living. We seek to understand reality, but we also believe in the imaginary and fiction when we desire existence. In other words, it is about not forgetting to remember the other, the others, and us, who in the space between dimensions, universes, places, dreams, remain mixed.
